Title:
Midnight Rider - These Days
Release Date: 11/16/2018
Format: 12
List Price: (B37) $37.98 

Gregg Allman's 1973 solo album debut also became his biggest hit, a No. 13 LP featuring his Top 20 chart classic "Midnight Rider." From the Analogue Productions sparkling Laid Back reissue now comes a 12-inch single featuring two classic cuts from that esteemed LP. Side one is "Midnight Rider." Side two is "These Days." Cut at 45 RPM for reduced distortion and better high frequency reproduction. Gregg Allman's pained, growling voice joins with horns and gospelish backing vocals to add a personal, often mournful feel on songs on Laid Back. Radio response was strong to the opening track, the loping remake of "Midnight Rider." It's a convincing version of the man's music. "It's one of the most iconic, universally-recognized, most-played songs there is. But it's also one of the best-recorded examples of a big-time hit," Acoustic Sounds/Quality Record Pressings owner Chad Kassem says. "It's never sounded better than this, cut at 45 RPM and on its own 12-inch record side." Likewise, the B-side track "These Days," he says, is "a classic Jackson Browne tune, covered beautifullly here by Allman."

Villa Lobos - The Little Train Of Caipra
Release Date: 11/16/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (B78) $78.98 

(2-LP set) The Little train of the Caipira was inspired by a ride that Villa-Lobos took in 1931 on a train that was transporting berry-pickers and farm laborers between villages in the Brazilian province of Sao Paolo. Within and hour he had completed the last movement (toccata) and that very night he and his wife played the movement on cello and piano. Alberto Ginastera, Argentina's most celebrated composers, wrote "Estancia", a one act Ballet in five movements, as a commissioned composition in 1941. It was not performed in ballet form, however, until 1952 in Buenos Aires. "Panambi" composed in 1936, and another ballet suite in five movements, is based on a South American Indian legend. Its primitive element is most spectacularly evident in the second movement which is scored for percussion and brass only and in the last movement "Dance of the Warriors" which works up to a tremendous final climax. This Classic Records faithful reissue features original artwork and labels and includes an "old style tip-on" jacket to add a touch of authenticity.

Live In San Francisco
Release Date: 12/14/2018
Format: LP
List Price: (A42) $42.98 

(2-LP set) "This recording of the final set at the Warfield Theatre brings to full circle the amazing advent of The Mahavishnu Orchestra In 1971, and its renaissance this night in San Francisco." mused the boundary-shattering guitarist John McLaughlin. On his farewell tour of America, which comprised of 25 concerts, John invited one of his favorite musicians, guitarist Jimmy Herring and his band “The Invisible Whip” to explore the timeless music he had created four decades ago. On November 16, 2018 , Abstract Logix issues Live in San Francisco – a souvenir of a sold-out concert at the historic Warfield Theatre, a beloved venue last visited by John McLaughlin thirty six years ago. In the 4th Dimension – Ranjit Barot (drums, konokol), Gary Husband (keyboards, drums), and Etienne M’Bappé (bass) and in The Invisible Whip – Kevin Scott (Bass), Matt Slocum (Clavinet and B3), Jason Crosby (Fender Rhodes, Violin, Vocals) and Jeff Sipe (Drums) – The Meeting of the Spirits tour featured a 9-piece orchestra that further amplified the seminal music he created in the 70’s, documented in albums – “Birds of Fire”, “Inner Mountain Flame” and “Visions of Emerald Beyond”. So connected are the nine members that the interplay approaches telepathic levels, making for powerfully evocative performances without any wasted gestures. Longtime fans will be thrilled to hear favorites like “Eternity’s Breath” (from Mahavishnu’s 1973 Visions of Emerald Beyond) and “Trilogy” (from 1973’s Between Nothingness And Eternity) reexamined through the lens of both the bands’ unparalleled sensitivity and astounding power. The September 2017 release of McLaughlin's Live @ Ronnie Scott’s was followed by the Meeting of the Spirits Tour – a series of November and December shows undertaken in collaboration with one of McLaughlin’s favorite musicians, American guitarist Jimmy Herring. Separate sets by Jimmy Herring and the Invisible Whip and McLaughlin and the 4th Dimension were followed by the two joining forces for an expansive closing jam based on classic Mahavishnu Orchestra material. These special concerts also marked McLaughlin’s final shows in America. As such, Live in San Francisco offers a tantalizing document of the Meeting of the Spirits Tour. “Playing these timeless compositions with John and The Fourth Dimension was a life changing experience!,” wrote Jimmy Herring.
